Aloha Monument

Aloha Monument Photo

  In June of 2014, Yurihama unveiled the Aloha Monument as it kicked off its first Aloha Carnival. The monument was constructed to commemorate both the 10th anniversary of the creation of the town through merging the former towns of Hawai, Tomari, and Tōgō, and to celebrate the ongoing friendship and exchange between Yurihama and Hawaii.

  The Aloha Monument is located in Yurihama’s Tōgō Hawai Seaside Park (near the Driving License Center and across the way from Hawai Yu~Town), against a breathtaking backdrop of the beauty of Lake Tōgō and the surrounding natural greenery. Attempting to capture just a bit of the aloha spirit, the monument is engraved with 2 hands making Hawaii’s shaka sign as well as a heart, making it a fun photo op for visitors to the park (especially couples!).

If you are ever in the area, stop on by and take your own photo posing in front of the Aloha Monument!☆

ハワイアンフェスティバルハワイinゆりはま ・ Hawaiian Festival Hawaii in Yurihama

2015.07.06 (Mon)

ハワイアンフェスティバルin

 

Based on Yurihama’s sister-city relationship with the County of Hawaii (Hawaii, USA), the hula-dance themed Hawaiian Festival is held with the aim of strengthening that friendship. The local residents are able to interact with Hawaiian culture and experience it firsthand, and through this deepen the mutual understanding. The festival also brings enthusiasts of Hawaiian traditional culture from all over the country together each year.

 

アメリカのハワイ州ハワイ郡との姉妹都市提携を踏まえ、ハワイの伝統文化であるフラダンスをテーマにしたイベントを開催し、友好交流を図っています。町民がハワイ文化に触れ、肌で感じることで国際交流への共通理解を深めるとともに、毎年、国内のハワイ伝統文化愛好者の集大成の場となっています。
